The sites I include are usually free sites of substantial reference value, authoritative, browsable, searchable, and packed with information, whether educational or aimed at answering everday questions.  I hope you find the information that I post helpful and informative. Many of the links I am including on this blog are resources that I use frequently in my life as a librarian. Other links contain topics of interests, additional resources that some of you might find interesting, and links to websites that I enjoy in my spare time.

    It is an honor to communicate with a Librarian.

  4. Your blog has an image that infringes copyright. This is a serious problem and I request you change the information and give the right back to the original artist.

    The photo, Tree of Life is NOT BY Roman Shatsky. It’s made by my good friend, a Korean photographer named Baki.

    You can check the evidence on his website: http://www.a-apollon.com

    I’ll inform about this to the original artist right away.
